Heidi Thorne Publishes Book on Public Speaking to Get Business


Public Speaking to Get Business by Heidi Thorne
Dr. Heidi Thorne, MBA/DBA, has published a book on public speaking for small businesses titled, Public Speaking to Get Business for Solopreneurs and Self-Employed Consultants, available on Amazon in both print and Kindle eBook editions.

“I was frustrated with most of the books on public speaking I read. They only talked about how to be a better speaker, not how to get or manage speaking gigs. That’s the toughest part! So that’s what motivated me to compile some of the tips and strategies I used over the years to get on stages to showcase my expertise and help get sales leads,” says Dr. Thorne.

Some of the topics covered in the book include:

  • Who hires public speakers?
  • Why you don’t want to be a “professional” speaker.
  • What should you talk about?
  • Does public speaking help you sell books? And can your book help you get speaking gigs?
  • How many sales leads can you really get from public speaking?
  • How to evaluate public speaking opportunities.
  • Dealing with unwanted post-presentation consultation requests.
  • 20 questions to ask your event host or organizer.
